Falsehood seems to have become the USP of many people around us and some of them even go around to spread death hoaxes. Now, last night, we heard that Kader Khan is no more. The worst part is the irresponsible journalism around us, and it rattles me. What you heard just write, what others wrote just write- no effort to confirm things and no effort to even frame correct English. Speed is important, neither is the veracity of the story nor is the language.
And mind you this is happening not in the world of only digital, but also TV and radio. That we at SpotboyE.com don't succumb is another story but we are just a drop in this ocean which is so rapidly getting dirty. Imagine, my fraternity has percolated death hoaxes of Amitabh Bachchan and Dharmendra too! Wonder what pleasure we get in shouting out something that is not true. This is called sadism isn't it?

So yeah despite the sadistic pleasure that some fast 'professionals' derived in the race (a race was created when there was none!), the news is that Kader Khan is very much alive. Talking EXCLUSIVELY to SpotboyE.com from Canada, his son Sarfraz told us at 1 am, "The news about my father's death is wrong."
Meanwhile yes, Kader saab continues to be critical and the doctors are fighting hard to save him. The legend has been bedridden since nearly 2 years and besieged with age-related health problems. Last heard, he was unconscious and breathless- he has been put on Valve Oxygen but it hasn't helped much.
